I am not sure about you, but the only time that I have ever heard of Ylang Ylang is during shampoo commercials as ingredients which are being listed. It turns out there are so many uses for Ylang Ylang. For one, the symbiotic interaction between Ylang Ylang and Geranium and Lavender oils are used to “create a positive, tranquil space while calming hyperactive feelings such as anger, anxiety, stress, or frustration. Ylang Ylang, Geranium, and Lavender oils together release an exquisite, peaceful floral scent which instantly soothes the spirit.” (New Directions Aromatics)
Another blend for a peaceful sleep includes Ylang Ylang and Bergamot (also used with a diffuser as the first mix discussed in previous sentences).
Ylang Ylang is best for the purpose of massage, arousal inducer and alleviation of pain. In this instance, massage oil is your best bet.
There are various combinations that can be used for that romantic evening of massage and love. Mix 4 drops of Ylang Ylang essential oil, 4 drops of Sandalwood Essential Oil, and 3 drops of Jasmine Grandiflorum Absolute (and please DO NOT FORGET THE CARRIER OIL 60 ml).
For pain relief, 3 drops of Ylang Ylang essential oil, 9 drops of Peppermint essential oil. Mix with the same amount of carrier oil as listed above (60 ml).
This applies to two blends I’ve shared above: “In a glass container, pour in the Carrier Oil before adding the Essential Oils. Mix the ingredients together by swirling the container. Warm a portion of this blend in between the palms of your hand before applying onto and massaging desired areas.” ( New Directions Aromatics)
Facial mask: 2 tsp. Multani Mitti (Fullers Earth) Clay (adjust as required), and 2 drops of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil “Measure and add the Multani Mitti Clay into a small bowl, followed by the Ylang Ylang Oil. Incorporate Rose Water as needed and mix to create a paste (the thickness can be adjusted to your liking). Using a face brush, gently apply the mixture and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse well.” (New Directions Aromatics)
